Back in November Solan was playing with Kristin’s crocs, and ate large chunks of them. Personally I find crocs to be both ugly and uncomfortable to walk in, but Solan obviously found them tasty. We threw them away as soon as we discovered what he was doing, and watched him for a few days to be sure he didn’t get ill. Apart from spending some time throwing up large chunks of blue plastic, he was fine.
Then, two weeks ago he got really sick. An x-ray showed an obstruction and when it hadn’t moved after two more days the vet decided to operate on him on Tuesday. They found two bits of crocs, one in his stomac and one stuck in his intestines. So, it took 8 months, but those crocs sure became trouble in the end.
We sauntered off to Copenhagen after visiting him at the vets on Wednesday morning, and my sister stepped in as cat nurse. She posted this photo of him on Instagram. He wasn’t feeling any good at all.
He didn’t really mind the body they had put on him to protect the wound, but it did get in the way when he was trying to give himself a bath, and he got really good at opening velcros. He was just a tiny bit offended when we fastened them again…
This was his third major medical emergency in less than a year and we’d like a long break from vet bills now.

Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don’t post random photos that you find online.
